It's Batman-sans-Batman this week, as we look at the short-lived masterpiece that is GOTHAM CENTRAL, by Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker.
The classic tale of a critical darling that had trouble finding its place in the market, GOTHAM CENTRAL focused on the detectives of the Major Crimes Unit in Gotham City, otherwise known as "the worst police detail in the world." Not just dealing with everyday horror like murder and kidnapping, the MCU faces down the threat of super-crime, all the while with an insane man in a bat costume standing behind the scenes, usually ruining their lives.
Join us as we talk about what it means to be a mainstream indie comic, the comparative evil of different rogue's galleries, and what sort of hat Ed Brubaker wears.
The Batman may be an urban legend, but The Stack is very real.
